Logon Script to Log On to Multiple Hosts with SecureCRT®
A developer at a telcommunications firm submitted this scripting tip, which logs on to multiple hosts using a common password. The script also allows him to easily change passwords on the dozens of sessions he has to manage. This script can be used with SecureCRT for Windows.
"Corporate security requires passwords to change every month. I use a single VBScript logon script for all these sessions and then I only change one script every time I have to change the common password. I even have the script customize itself, depending on which host is using it, once the logon sequence is done."
The script below logs on with the information that is common to all the servers. The script then reads the screen to get the name of the machine to which it's connected. That machine name is then used to decide on additional setup that can be automated before the script terminates and the Telnet session goes interactive.
Keep in mind that if the password is stored in a script, it will be in plain text.
Here is a link to VBScript logon script: MultiSessionLogin_vbs.txt
